Megan // Losing Her Mother To Alcoholism

Since Megan could remember, her mother struggled with alcoholism. Things got so bad, Megan went to college far away from home and never came back. It wasn’t until her mother was dying from liver disease that the two reconnected and made amends. Megan shares the hardships of growing up with a mother who wants to be more like a friend than a parent and gives advice on how those suffering with addiction and the people who care about them can get help.
